We have now seen Barack Obama’s approval ratings fall below 40 percent in a Gallup survey. The left-of-center polling firm reports Obama’s numbers are seriously upside down with an alarming 54 percent disapproving of his performance in office.
Forget about the bad numbers Congressional Republicans are getting. The faces of Congress, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are not running. Obama’s 39 percent approval rating begs for a primary. Maybe Hillary Clinton will grace us with her presence and defend her disastrous years as the Secretary of State. Maybe we’ll see the Left panic and nominate a George McGovern, but as things stand today, Obama and the Democrats are staring an election night bloodbath in the face.
More Bad News and from the White House Steno Pool
The latest word from The Washington Post, the Democrat’s pet newspaper is devastating for the Democrats and Obama. Its just completed survey found merely 20 percent of voters would cast a ballot to re-elect Obama! Another 33 percent “would consider voting for him,” which in political conventional wisdom means most of those respondents would not vote for him. If just half of those voters don’t come back to Obama, and at this point he has nothing left to entice them with, he could be looking at a 65/35 blowout.
But the news in The Post’s survey gets still worse. It found two of three respondents have little or no confidence in Obama’s ability to improve the economy. That’s telling.
Add to this the fact that for the first time Obama’s approve/disapprove numbers are at 45/49 in New York — a state Democrats simply cannot afford to have to fight over. We could be seeing a perfect storm brewing for November 2012.
You Can’t Beat Somebody with Nobody
Where will the Democratic Party find candidates willing to run with a radioactive Barack Obama at the top of their ticket? Challengers in House races have to put upwards of $300,000 of their own (or somebody else’s) money on the table to get a Congressional election nomination. How many eager Democrats have $300,000 to throw away?
That the next president will be a Republican is almost a certainty. The question now is which Republican, because Obama’s troubles give us a rare luxury – not having to settle for and suffer through another John McCain RINO.
